Major ISPs, home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services by 6 June 2012.
Using IPv6's global addressing as a way to get direct connectivity between my home and office. With IPv4 we had to setup up a VPN which required some management. Having IPv6 at home and work (via TunnelBroker) makes it easy to connect directly to the machines I want to get to. Teredo/miredo helps connecting from coffee shops, etc. when on the go.
Adding IPv6 support to a web provisioning interface for a large telecom project.
Getting a mikrotik router to work with a Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel, enabling IPv6 on my LAN. And if there's time, also about the IPv6 firewall rules I use to protect my LAN nodes from the rest of the IPv6 Internet.
